Waiting On Wednesday #45

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Edge of Nowhere by Elizabeth George

Summary via Goodreads:
The first young adult book by a #1 New York Times bestselling author

Whidbey Island may be only a ferry ride from Seattle, but it's a world apart. When Becca King arrives there, she doesn't suspect the island will become her home for the next four years. Put at risk by her ability to hear "whispers"--the thoughts of others--Becca is on the run from her stepfather, whose criminal activities she has discovered. Stranded and alone, Becca is soon befriended by Derric, a Ugandon orphan adopted by a local family; Seth, a kindhearted musician and high school dropout; Debbie, a recovering alcoholic who takes her in; and Diana, with whom Becca shares a mysterious psychic connection.

This compelling coming-of-age story, the first of an ongoing sequence of books set on Whidbey Island, has elements of mystery, the paranormal, and romance. Elizabeth George, bestselling author of the Inspector Lynley crime novels, brings her elegant style, intricate plotting, incisive characterization, and top-notch storytelling to her first book for teens.


There's nothing about The Edge of Nowhere that I don't like the sound of. Seriously. But to be honest, I'm a bit skeptical as to how all of the plot will work out--which means that I have my fingers crossed and seriously hope that I'll like it. 

The Edge of Nowhere by Elizabeth George is published by Viking Juvenile, an imprint of Penguin Group, and its expected publication date is September 4, 2012. 

So, what are you looking forward to this week?
